Dallas-Based Casual Dining Franchise Partners with No Kid Hungry®
to Help Fight Childhood Hunger

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, and in an effort to do its part to
fight against childhood hunger, Boston’s
Restaurant & Sports Bar
(Boston’s) is hosting its annual
Boston’s Cares fundraising campaign. From January 25 – February 14,
Boston’s locations across the United States will collect proceeds from
the sale of Gourmet Pizzas in addition to guest donations for the
Boston’s Pizza Foundation in support of No Kid Hungry®.

Building on the tradition first started by its Canadian parent company,
the Boston’s Pizza Foundation will kick off its 2016 giving season with
the annual Boston’s Cares campaign. During the campaign, funds will be
collected by the Foundation and at the end of the campaign, Boston’s
hopes to have raised over $28,000 in just 3 short weeks. The Boston’s
Cares campaign comes after a successful charitable year in 2015 in which
the Foundation hosted multiple initiatives including an annual Golf
Tournament and other year-round fundraising events in support of its
national and local charity partners. Since its inception in 2003, the
Boston’s Pizza Foundation has raised more than $1,500,000 in support of
charities across the United States.

“Our company takes great pride in giving back to those in need and our
Boston’s Cares campaign is our kick-off to a year-long initiative to
helping make a difference in people’s lives,” said Troy Cooper, Chief
Operating Officer of Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar. “The partnership
with No Kid Hungry during this annual campaign allows us to get funds
into the hands of people that need it most and it allows us to do our
part in helping end childhood hunger right here in our backyards.”

During the 2016 Boston’s Cares campaign, all 28 Boston’s locations
across the country will offer a variety of opportunities for guests to
donate:

  • $0.50 from every pizza will be donated to No Kid Hungry® and
    the Boston’s corporate team will match the money raised with a
    donation of their own
  • February 8-14: Heart-Shaped Pizzas will be available during the week
    of Valentine’s Day
  • Paper Hearts will be available for purchase which will then be hung up
    around the restaurant

Hunger is an epidemic that is threatening America’s future by preventing
children from reaching their full potential. The No Kid Hungry campaign
connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches families how to
prepare healthy, affordable meals. The campaign also engages the public
to make ending childhood hunger a national priority.

“The support that the Boston’s Pizza Foundation and all operating
Boston’s restaurants continues to provide to No Kid Hungry is truly
unmatched,” said Debbie Shore, co-founder of Share Our Strength. “1 in 5
kids in America doesn’t get the food they need every day which takes a
terrible toll on their health and development and threatens their
futures in profound ways. Through No Kid Hungry® and
partnerships with companies like Boston’s, we are able to provide
sustenance to those who need it most.”

Boston’s Restaurant & Sports Bar’s U.S. operations are based in Dallas.
The company currently has 28 locations operating in 23 states and the
company’s sister brand, Boston Pizza which is celebrating more than 50
years of service, has more than 375 locations throughout Canada and is
considered the No. 1 casual dining brand in the country.
